Yes. IV bad choice.: The oral route and IV route are equally effective at correcting excessive anticoagulation. The IV route carries the risk of anaphylaxis. Therefore the IV route should not be used if the oral route is available. The SC route is NOT as effective as the oral or IV and should not be considered a first line option. ...Read more

Helps blood clot: Vit K is necessary in the cascade for clotting. Infants dis not have enough Vit K in the old days and would present with fatal hemorrhaging at 7-8 days-called Hemmorhagic Disease of the Newborn. Fortunately this is rarely seen today. There is tremendous benefit at birth where the recommendation is for an injection of 1 mg right after birth. ...Read more
Improves clotting: A long time ago before we gave injections at birth of vit k, infants would have episodes of bleeding called hemorrhagic disease of the newborn. There were many fatalities. Since vit k is not present in sufficient quantities in breast & bottled milk, it is given to all infants at birth to improve clotting factors to prevent hemorrhaging. ...Read more
Bleeding: Vitamin k is a cofactor in humans' ability to clot. When we don't have enough we have the potential to have severe bleeding. That is why brand new babies receive a dose of vitamin k. Humans get most of their vitamin k from bacteria in their intestines although it also comes from some foods. ...Read more
Proper clotting: Vitamin k is required for the proper function of our clotting system. Failure to give newborns vitamin K ,makes them at risk of spontaneous hemorrhage. The most worrisome would be into the brain (birth trauma) or with any surgical procedure. A single IM dose can protect baby until their body can generate the needed K from their diet.Gut germs convert the dietary K to an active form. ...Read more
Not so much: Bergamot is a type of orange that grows in italy, and is often used to flavor tea. Green teas may be rich in vitamin k -- not so much the bergamot in it, though. If you're on Coumadin (warfarin) or another blood thinning medication, your doctor will want to keep your bleeding time stable. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Slightly effective: Vitamin k is slightly effective in improving under-eye circles. The effectiveness of vitamin k can be enhanced by adding vitamin a (retinol).

Prevent bleeding: An injection of vitamin k is given to newborns shortly after birth to prevent "'vitamin k deficiency bleeding". This serious bleeding condition would occur in 0.3-1.7/100 babies without the vitamin k shot. Newborns do not have much vitamin k when they are born because it does not pass easily through the placenta and newborn livers are not able to store it well. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: There's a lot of malicious disinformation out there about vitamin K because it's given to children as an injection, and the anti-immunization / doctor-bashing crowd has started telling each other untruths about it. With your interests, you'd do well to get with an evidence-based holist in our community. I'm glad you have an inquiring mind and are health-conscious. Good luck. ...Read more

No known time: Vitamin k is important in the body for the formation of coagulation factors which will ultimately aid in the coagulation process. It's administration will help bleeding to stop if the person is deficient (and timing differs depending on the wound location, depth, etc) but this not always the case, as some bleedings are caused by other reasons. ...Read more

Only if on coumadin (warfarin): Vitamin k interferes with the actions of coumadin, (warfarin) but that it a big reason i don't like coumadin, (warfarin) as people on it suffer from lack of vit k. It makes more sense to take a steady amount of k-rich foods & adjust Coumadin (warfarin) dose accordingly. Some say to avoid k if you have g-6-pd deficiency, are on dialysis or have cirrhosis, but foods high in k should be fine; they just should not supplement with it. ...Read more

My vitamin k level was low at 17. Taking 80mg of vitamin k @day and eating foods with it as well, how long to raise it? Is 17 dangerous level?
Vitamin K helps: with many things but most importantly it helps with clotting factors in your blood. It is an essential nutrient but not indispensable. You can raise it slowly without having to worry that it will affect your daily life adversely or acutely. Continue eating green leafy vegetables and supplements daily. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap. ...Read more
I take 50 mg of metropolis morning and evening along with two diuretics, a friend suggested that I avoid vitamin k. Do I need to avoid any foods?
I am going to make: several assumptions about your question. First, I assume you are taking diuretics and metopROLOL, a beta blocker. There should be no issues with vitamin K with these drugs. You do have to be careful not to deplete potassium (chemical symbol K!) on the diuretics. Vitamin K rarely needs to be supplemented, but intake (watch green leafies) needs monitoring if you are taking blood thinners/warfarin ...Read more
I have been told that vitamin K may be administered subcutaneously but should not be administered intravenously in adults. If this is correct then why is this so?
See answer: In order of highest to lowest preference, vit k can be given orally (po), subcutaneously (sq), intramuscular (im), or intravenous (iv). The injectable form of vitamin k can rarely cause severe (sometimes fatal) allergic reactions when given by im or iv. Therefore, vitamin k should only be given im or slowly IV if rapid or immediate correction of over-anticoagulation is required. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Bleeding issues: The human clotting mechanism is a balance of factors and co-factors.It takes about 8 days for the untreated kid to establish a competent system of clotting aided by gut bacteria that help us convert dietary vit k to a usable form. Before then there is a slight but real risk of intracranial hemorrhage or other bleeding brought on by the stresses of childbirth.The shot builds up clotting immediately. ...Read more
Inhibits warfarin: Vitamin k is important for certain blood clotting factors in the body, and warfarin interferes with the way the body uses vitamin k. If someone ingests a large amount of vitamin k while on warfarin, it interferes with how warfarin works, thus putting the person at an increased risk of developing a clot. Conversely, if you stop all vitamin k, warfarin works too well, increasing bleeding risk. ...Read more
Yes, but not best.: Although a parent can refuse vitamin k by injection (shot) for their newborn, the pediatric and family practice societies of both canada and the United States strongly recommend this approach, since studies have shown that it is the most effective way to protect a baby from hemorrhagic disease. If a shot is refused, then a series of three oral doses, given during the first 8 weeks, is recommended. ...Read more

Yes: Vitamin k helps the newborn to gain the ability to have normal coagulation. This has been shown to significantly decrease the risk of intracerebral hemorrhage of the newborn. Because its a shot, many parents do not want to give it but the risk of not giving it can be significant. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
